Experienced Defense Against A Wide Range Of Drug Charges

Conviction of even a minor drug offense can have long-term negative consequences. Your work and personal life can be turned upside down. If you face a charge for possession of an illegal substance or any other drug-related crime, it is important to enlist representation from a knowledgeable and experienced criminal defense lawyer.

At Balian Legal, PLC, we protect the rights of clients who face misdemeanor and felony drug charges. Attorney Michael J. Balian brings more than 30 years of experience to each case. He understands how prosecutors approach these cases, and he knows how to develop strong defense strategies.

While there are a number of common aspects to drug cases, each has its own unique elements. Mr. Balian will take the time to review your case carefully and create a strategy designed to produce the best possible outcome.

You Deserve To Be Informed

One of the most common complaints that individuals have when they hire a criminal defense attorney is poor communication. We emphasize clear communication from the initial consultation through the resolution of each case. We make sure every client understands the charges they face, their options in terms of defense strategy, and the outcomes that are possible.

Many cases involving drug charges can be resolved without going to trial. In cases where dismissal of the charges is not possible, we help our clients assess the pros and cons of reaching a negotiated settlement versus going to trial. Our priority in every case is to minimize the impact that a criminal charge has on the client's life.

We represent clients who face a wide range of drug charges, including:

  • Illegal possession, distribution or sales of marijuana under the Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act
  • Possession, sale or manufacturing cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines, opioids or other controlled substances
  • Illegal possession, distribution or use of prescription drugs
  • Drug trafficking or other federal drug offenses
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
